Yucaipa is a safe and promising city in the valley. It has modest roots as a town founded by missionaries and built by orchards and farming, so it's not surprising to see the city is still but a fledgling in regards to competitive jobs, attractiveness, and lacks much in the regards to diversity of people and businesses... I mean, unless you just LOVE fastfood, carwashes, and trailer-ehem! I mean, mobile home parks. At the same time, the city boasts an excellent school system, mild tempered occupants-that's a score for an LA suburb!- and this overwhelming quality of antiquity that just pulls you in. It is small, it can be boring, it can be lonesome, it can be outdoorsy, it can be peaceful, it can be HOT, it can be arid, it's central to the beach and desert and beautiful mountains, and most of all with its escape from many dangers and much violence-as my parents had seen to before we moved-it can comfortably be a place to call home: and I think I can see that too.

Very affordable community but comes with problems. After 7 years, the most striking concern for me is the stark racism. It isn't noticeable at first, but it's unsettling (and I'm white) There are many heroine and meth users in town and a very active (albeit silent) white supremacist following. The other issue with Yucaipa is its lack of support for small business. The two main roads out of town have grown wider and had speeds raised. People speed by, and businesses never last. The city often approves larger chains near the mom-and-pops. A town of 50,000 residents needs jobs - not shopping choices. Most have to commute far, such as Riverside, Ontario, or LA for good jobs. It's SoCal in general but also the lack of local business here. Freeway-bound traffic is heavy in the mornings and inbound in the evenings. Yucaipa has strangely low housing costs for California, but this is because the city includes roughly 45 mobile home parks in those stats - some with 50 homes, some with 150.
Yucaipa is a very small town in the San Bernardino County. It is very family friendly and safe town to live in. If you enjoy living in a small and quiet suburban area, then Yucaipa is the perfect town to live in. Although things such as the movies, the mall, shopping centers such as Target or Walmart, etc., you would have to drive by to the nearest town (Redlands, CA) to get to those certain places. Yucaipa has a nice small community college called 'Crafton Hills College' along with the highschool nearby 'Yucaipa High School', and along that comes a few elementary schools as well.
